PINE GROVE - Pine Grove's Steph Aungst was better known for her passing skills the first two seasons of her high school soccer career.
This season, things have changed. The junior midfielder has been getting more goal-scoring opportunities and Aungst has capitalized.
Like Tuesday night, for example.
Aungst scored twice to lift the Cardinals to a 3-1 win over Blue Mountain in a Schuylkill League Division I girls' soccer showdown at Cardinal Stadium September 22.
POTTSVILLE - Williams Valley put 25 shots on goal September 28 against Nativity, but the Vikings only needed one to go in.
Rayanne Hawk's goal on a penalty kick early in the first half was enough to lead Williams Valley to a 1-0 Division II victory over Nativity atop Lawton's Hill.
Hawk buried her shot in the upper-right corner behind Green Wave goalkeeper Rachael Souchak, who made 24 saves.
Vikings down Tri-Valley
WILLIAMSTOWN - Williams Valley coach Tim Savage was looking to see how the Vikings would respond following last week's loss to rival Tri-Valley.
Williams Valley went out September 25 and had its best offensive performance of the season so far.
Nick Rodichok threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns, all in the first half, as the Vikings built a big halftime lead and went on to a 61-26 victory over Upper Dauphin in a Tri-Valley League contest at Gerry Stauffenberg Field at Viking Stadium.
JIM THORPE - Tri-Valley is a football team that plays in a small school league, the Tri-Valley League, that consists primarily of single A schools.
Jim Thorpe is a Class AAA school that currently sits atop the Anthracite Football League standings.
Both teams went into their September 25 non-league game with unbeaten records. But the similarities ended there.
The Olympians pulled away for a 35-0 victory over the Dawgs on the back of Robert Heller's 243 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries.
ELIZABETHVILLE - Jordan Gessner, Mason Stoneroad and Alex Uhler can make defending difficult for the opposition.
The chemistry the Upper Dauphin trio possesses up top creates ample scoring opportunities for the Trojans. Saturday morning, Williams Valley repelled those chances as long as it could before the UDA top three again proved to be the difference.
Uhler's 67th-minute goal from Gessner handed the Trojans a 2-1 non-league victory over the Vikings in a physical contest between the two neighboring schools.
